    Hooray Rubber Sippers are the best!

  2. Nora R. says:

    *Whoops, Ruby sippers.

    (Maybe if you have too many they get called rubber sippers? )

    1. Ms. Go Go was just thinking the same thing, Nora!

    Also, try this (although it has a more summery feel): A little bit of the ginger liquer, a little bit of dark rum, sparkling lemonade, and maybe a little bit of agave syrup.

    1. Oh, that sounds delicious, Margaret! Weigh in, Go Go’ers! Summery or just so delicious?!
